WinXP checkdisk FAT32 on boot when Linux writes to it


Win XP tries to perform a check disk on boot on my FAT32 partition when I write something inLinux to that partition before the boot. If I forget to stop Win XP, it deletes the data I wrote, thinking it is corruption. How do you stop this?
Thanks so much!

set XP not to check disks on start up....
if it won't let you then try setting the time out to be longer.
its obviously a windows problme and not a linux one.

unless you actually need XP then it might be the time to ditch it and move over to linux for good.

QUOTE FROM OTHER FORUM: "poppy, you can exclude drive letters forim being checked on boot - it's a key in registry but you can achieve it easily with chkntfs command and /x option for exclude from checking. For more info type chkntfs /?"
This one worked. Thanks! I guess googling is an art you've gotta learn

no harm done.

it did take me a little while but google should always be your first point of call ( see below!!). you learn to feed it the right keywords to get the right answers. sometimes the order matters too.
glad i could help
